Hi, I'm Warren Cardinal, founder of Lucid Crew in Austin, Texas. I'm going to show you a quick and easy way to build a review website. For this demo we're going to start with a default installation of Word Press that I've imported some test data into. Word Press is an open source software that you can install on any posting account and you manage your website remotely through Word Press. Once Word Press is installed on your server, you can use it to create any kind of site that you like. There's a full explanation on how to download and install Word Press at What we're going to do is go to the dashboard and activate a plug-in. With that installed, called WP review site, this is a great plug-in that will allow us to transform a default Word Press installation in to a full fledged review site. I'm going to activate that plug-in, and then I'm going to go to my themes and activate the plug in that comes with Word Press review site. And once I've done that we go there and I can see what the theme looks like. And now I want to change some settings, and say that I also want people to be able to rate by price, and I want to have post weighted by rating, sorted by weighting. Display a comparison table on the homepage, save settings, so now they go here, can save this to this nice ranking on the homepage so if I go into one of these products or service that I'm going to allow people to rate, we go down here and say, rate price - could use better customer service, could submit that, and go back to my homepage and you can see that it became number one. I can create reviews. It shows me the overall rating and rating on price that I added. When comments have a rating, we'll show that and that'll let me rate this again if I want. So I can go through and rate any of these products or services and allow my visitors to do that too. And so then we have some instant content in their nice, nice review site, very simply and easily.
